Feng Shui Summary

Feng Shui: Environments of Power - A Study of Chinese Architecture by Evelyn Lip

Feng Shui - the Chinese philosophy of placing, siting and designing a building so that it is in harmony with everything that surrounds it - has been practised in China for several thousand years. It became so deeply rooted in Chinese traditional architecture that the basic principles of building - symmetry, balance and orientation - were based on its concept. The practice of Feng Shui is cited in texts dating from the 3rd century and is still in use in the modern world - Sir Norman Foster made numerous changes to the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank in Hong Kong after consulting an expert in Feng Shui. Also known as Kan Yu, Feng Shui incorporates many aspects of Chinese belief and culture, the philosophy of yin and yan, Chinese symbolism and cosmology, ecology, compatability of horoscopes and orientation, and a sense of good design. With numerous illustrations throughout, this text provides an explanation of this ancient Chinese philosophy and its various applications to architecture.
